The Metamorphosis

How do you view the reactions of Gregor’s parents to their first view of his metamorphosis? What circumstances in ordinary life might elicit a similar response?

At first his parents do not know what to make of Gregor. They find him lazy for not going to his job. Similarly a parent today might not examine why their teen does not want to go to school and assume it is laziness. Perhaps their child is going through a crisis of some sort but the parent does not stop that actually talk with their child. Meanwhile their teen is undergoing psychological and perhaps physical changes because of their anxiety.
